It's hard to beat coming home from a walk along the beach and settling down by a real fire with a glass of something good. For your evening entertainment there's a TV with BT TV, and Wi-Fi also provided. Or you could just switch everything off, open the window and listen to the sound of the waves and gulls calling high overhead.
With its solid wood units and open aspect, the kitchen is a pleasant place to rustle up a hearty Yorkshire breakfast. For lunch or dinner how about some locally caught fresh seafood from one of Whitby's fishmongers. Settle down around the generous dining table to enjoy. Seating up to 6 when pulled out from the wall, this table is just made for making memories around. The kitchen facilities include a gas hob, oven, fridge with an ice-box and a washing machine too, handy if you need to wash little one's wet clothes.
Make your way upstairs to find a double bedroom, twin room and family bathroom. The master bedroom is surprisingly spacious and features a king-size cream metal bed. Plenty of storage available too with a built-in wardrobe. Next door is a sweet bunk room, perfect for younger kids. Please note due to the compact nature of this little room there is limited storage.
The family bathroom is bright and cheerful. There's a bath for those that love a hot soak every evening, and a shower over the bath.
The additional bedroom is set at the end of the patio garden in a separate annex. It comes complete with a double metal bed as well as an en-suite shower room with WC. It's perfect for adults who want their own space. Please note this bedroom is not suitable for children as its separate from the main house.
The patio garden sits directly opposite the house across the quiet footpath. It's offers a generous stone patio and is enclosed with a stone wall and white picket gate. It's completely sheltered from the coastal breezes and offers a quiet spot for lunch or afternoon G & T. The beach is just a stone's throw away, so you can have the sand between your toes within seconds. Heavenly!
Parking is available roadside nearby on a first come, first served basis and there's also a large carpark just a few hundred yards away. Please note that the original old steps up to the cottage can be uneven in places where the sea has weathered them over the years.
